This year, International Women’s Day focused on ending violence against women — a gross human rights violation that affects up to 7 in 10 women and a top priority for UN Women. As commemorations are underway in all corners of the globe, “One Woman” reminds us that together, we can overcome violence and discrimination: “We Shall Shine!” Join us to help spread the word and enjoy this musical celebration of women worldwide.

We love community murals. They enhance the spirit of community.
Come help out this Saturday. The mural was designed by the Mt. Hope Young Women’s Group, a wonderful group of talented girls from Hope H.S. Mural will be a wonderful addition to the neighborhood.
The Month of Peace in RI this September was a huge success thanks to the many organizations who created events and the many people who participated in the events. There were 25 peace events held all around RI throughout the month of September. The month was off to a great start with a Peace Walk at WaterFire. Then all month long we had dances for peace, meditations, performances by musicians, storytellers, spoken-word artists, singers for peace; thoughtful speakers for peace; a nonviolence training; art for peace — and last, but not least — the making of peace flags! Thank you all for your participation. It was wonderful to bring together programs that reflect the many aspects of peace, showing how much effort the people of RI put into peace and nonviolence. The traditions of our progressive founder Roger Williams continue to this day. Thank you. In peace and gratitude, Ginny Fox
